Getting Started
Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and
features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly.
For example, you can create an appropriate power saving
profile, put your notebook into Suspend mode when it
is not performing an operation, and you can limit the
use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery
powered computers, there is a trade-off between
performance and power savings.
SUSPEND/RESUME/POWER ON BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Suspend/
Resume/Power On button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Suspend mode. Push the button
when your notebook is active, but not actively accessing
anything, and immediately release the button. You will
hear two short beeps and your system will enter
Suspend mode. (See figure 2-3 on page 6 for location)
If your LifeBook notebook is suspended, pushing the
Suspend/Resume/Power On button will return your
notebook to active operation. You can tell whether or
not your system is in Suspend mode by looking at the
Power indicator. (See figure 2-3 on page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your notebook is fully
operational. If the indicator is both visible and flashing,
your notebook is in Suspend mode. If the indicator is
not visible at all, the power is off or your notebook is in
Hibernation mode.
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend or Standby mode in Windows saves the
contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory
during periods of inactivity by maintaining power to
critical parts. This mode will turn off the CPU, the
display, the hard drive, and all of the other internal
components except those necessary to maintain system
memory and allow for restarting. Your notebook can be
put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
Pressing the Suspend/Resume/Power On button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
■
■
Timing out from lack of activity.
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
You can change the actions the computer takes when the
lid is closed or buttons are pressed by clicking [Start] ->
Control Panel. Double-click the Power Options icon and
select the Advanced tab.
Your LifeBook notebook’s system memory typically
stores the file(s) on which you are working, open application(s) information, and any other data required to
support the operation(s) in progress. When you resume
operation from Suspend mode, your notebook will
return to the point where it left off. You must use the
Suspend/Resume/Power On button to resume operation,
and there must be an adequate power source available, or
your notebook will not resume.
■
■
■
If you are running your LifeBook notebook on battery power, be aware that
the battery continues to discharge while
your notebook is in Suspend mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
Disabling the Suspend/Resume/Power
On button prevents it from being used
to put your LifeBook notebook in
Suspend or Hibernation mode. The
resume function of the button cannot
be disabled.
If your LifeBook notebook is actively
accessing information when you enter
the Suspend or Hibernation mode,
changes to open files are not lost. The
files are left open and memory is kept
active during Suspend mode or the
memory is transferred to the internal
hard drive during Hibernation mode.
The Suspend or Hibernation mode should
not be used with certain PC Cards. Check
your PC Card documentation for more
information.
When PC Cards or external devices are in
use, Hibernation mode cannot return to
the exact state prior to suspension,
because all of the peripheral devices will be
re-initialized when the system restarts.
HIBERNATION FEATURE
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your
LifeBook notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as
a part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or
disable this feature.

Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to restart your notebook. Your notebook
will shut down and then reboot.
Turning off your LifeBook notebook without exiting Windows or turning on your
notebook within 10 seconds of the notebook being shut off may cause an error
when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
You can also enter Hibernate mode by
clicking Start -> Shut Down..., then selecting Hibernate from the dropdown menu.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Suspend/Resume
button and can be enabled and disabled in Windows and
BIOS setup utility.
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility.
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
Power Management
The Power Management icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some of the power
management settings. For example, you can use the
Power Management to set the timeout values for turning
off the display and hard disks whether you are running
the notebook on battery power or one of the adapters.
The settings may also be changed in the BIOS.
28
Before turning off the power, check that the Hard Drive,
DVD, CD-ROM, CD-RW, PC Card and the Floppy Disk
Drive Access indicators are all Off. (See figure 2-3 on
page 6) If you turn off the power while accessing a disk
or PC Card there is a risk of data loss. To ensure that
your notebook shuts down without error, use the
Windows shut down procedure.
Be sure to close all files, exit all applications, and shut down your operating system prior to turning off the power. If files
are open when you turn the power off,
you will lose any changes that have not
been saved, and may cause disk errors.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows
allows your notebook to complete its operations and turn
off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The
proper sequence is:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Shut Down option from within the
Windows Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to shut down your notebook.
If you are going to store your notebook for a month or
more see Care and Maintenance Section.

User Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery (and
possibly an optional modular battery) that provides
power for operating your notebook when no external
power source is available. The battery is durable and
long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals, or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 5°C
(41°F) or a high of 35°C (95°F). Extreme temperatures
not only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause
battery deterioration. The charging indicator on the
Status Indicator panel will flash red for the affected
battery (battery 1 or 2) when you try to charge a
battery that is outside of operating temperature range.
(See Battery Charging Indicators on page 12 for more
information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
DVD/CD-RW drive, or the hard drive, using the AC
adapter will conserve your battery life.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current
into the bad battery.
■
■
Battery life will vary based on screen
brightness, applications, features, power
management settings, battery condition
and other customer preferences.DVD,
CD-RW, CD-ROM, or hard drive usage
may also have a significant impact on
battery life. The battery charging capacity is reduced as the battery ages. If your
battery is running low quickly, you
should replace it with a new one.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Take care of our
environment by disposing of batteries
properly. Check with your local government authority for information on recycling or disposing of old batteries. If you
cannot find this information elsewhere,
contact your support representative at
1-800-8Fujitsu (1-800-838-5487)
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level 1 indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes. If you want to know
the condition of the secondary modular Lithium ion
battery, check the Battery Level 2 indicator located on
the Status Indicator panel.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging indicator and the percentage charge is shown
inside the Battery Level icon on the Status
Indicator Panel. (See Battery Charging
Indicators on page 12 for more information)
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
significantly longer if your notebook is in use while the
battery is charging.
If you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your
notebook into Suspend mode, or turn it off while the
adapter is charging the battery. (See Power Management
on page 27 for more information)
Using heavy current devices such as Modem
or frequent DVD/CD-RW/CD-ROM
accesses may prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
31
P7010.book Page 32 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
LifeBook P7000 Notebook – Section Four
■
■
Once the low battery notification message appears, you need to save all your
active data and put your system into
Suspend mode until you can provide a
new power source. You should provide a
charged battery, AC power adapter, or
Auto/Airline adapter as soon as possible.
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you turn off the power
or remove all power sources while your
LifeBook notebook is in Suspend mode,
any data that has not been saved to the
hard drive will be lost.
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Suspend mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you will
be unable to resume operation until you provide a
source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Suspend/Resume button to resume operation.

4. Remove the battery from the bay.
5. Place the new battery into the bay. (Figure 4-2)
6. Verify that the battery bay latches click into place.
In Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be maintained for some time, but if a power source is not
provided promptly, the charging indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your notebook while an adapter is
charging the battery.

Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel battery charging icons will
blink red to indicate a shorted battery or battery
problem. This indicates that the battery is damaged and
must be replaced so it does not damage any other parts
of your LifeBook notebook.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have
a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not
charged.
Swapping Batteries when Additional Power Source
is not Available
To swap batteries in your battery bay when you don’t
have another power source available (such as an AC

USING THE OPTICAL DRIVE
ON BATTERY POWER
Since an optical drive consumes a lot of power, your
overall battery life will be shorter when operating the
drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie) than
during standard operation. Many movies run-times are
longer than your LifeBook notebook can support on a
single battery. If you are watching a DVD movie on
battery power you may need to swap in an additional,
charged battery or attach AC power during the movie to
view it in its entirety.
■
■
Prolonged use of the optical drive,
such as when watching a DVD movie,
will substantially reduce your notebook’s battery life.
An additional fully-charged battery is
highly recommended if you will be
watching DVD movies on battery
power. If you don’t have an additional
battery, you may purchase one either
on-line at us.fujitsu.com/computers
or call 1-877-372-3473.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the DVD/CD-RW
application.
If you do not stop the optical drive quickly
and the LifeBook notebook attempts to
auto-suspend (critical battery low state)
the notebook will shut down improperly. If
this occurs, you will need to install a fresh
power source (either a charged battery or
AC Adapter).
4. Connect an AC Adapter to your system, or install a
fully charged battery in the Flexible Bay (after
removing any modular devices that may be present
in the bay) prior to removing the main battery.
5. Manually place your notebook into suspend mode
by depressing the Suspend button then replace the
discharged battery with a fully-charged battery.
6. If you removed the optical drive from the Flexible
Bay in step 4, reinstall it now.
7. Resume your notebook by pressing the Suspend
button again. This step is not required if you
attached AC power without entering suspend mode.
8. Restart your DVD/CD-RW application and skip to
the chapter of the movie you were last watching.
9. Continue watching your DVD movie.
36
Some shorter DVD movies may not require
you to swap batteries or attach AC power
to complete them. However, it is best to be
prepared since actual battery life while
operating the optical drive cannot be
guaranteed.
AUTO INSERT NOTIFICATION FUNCTION
The Auto Insert Notification function allows your LifeBook notebook to automatically start a DVD/CD as soon
as it is inserted in the optical drive and the tray is closed.
Your notebook will begin playing an audio DVD/CD or
will start an application if the DVD/CD includes an auto
run file.
To prevent a CD from playing automatically as soon as it
is inserted, refer to the related help file for your specific
operating system.
EMERGENCY TRAY RELEASE
In the event that your system does not have power
applied, you can still open the media tray using the end
of an opened paper clip. To open the tray, insert the
paper clip into the emergency tray release hole on the
fact of the tray (Figure 4-7). The tray will pop open.

1. Perform steps 1 through 3 of Accessing the Memory
Compartment.
2. Pull the module clips sideways away from each side
of the memory module simultaneously. (Figure 416)
Module Clip
Your LifeBook notebook has two micro DIMM slots. If
you have less than 1 GB pre-installed, and you would like
to increase it, you will need to remove the installed
module and replace it with the larger module or add a
new module to an empty slot. The memory upgrade must
be a dual-in-line (micro DIMM) SDRAM module. To
ensure 100% compatibility, purchase the memory
module only from the Fujitsu web store at
us.fujitsu.com/computers.
The memory upgrade module can be
severely damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Be sure you are properly
grounded when handling and installing the
module.
ACCESSING THE MEMORY COMPARTMENT
To gain access to the memory compartment, follow these
steps:
You must turn off power and remove any
modem connection before installing the
memory upgrade module.
1. Turn off power to your LifeBook notebook, and
remove any power adapter (AC or auto/airline),
battery pack, and modem connection.
2. Place your LifeBook notebook with the bottom
facing up on a clean work surface.
3. Remove the two screws from the holes in the
memory compartment cover. (Figure 4-15)
Figure 4-16. Removing a memory module
3. While holding the clips out, remove the module
from the slot by lifting it up and pulling towards the
back of your LifeBook notebook.
4. Store the memory upgrade module in a static
guarded sleeve.
5. Install a new memory module as detailed in the
procedure below.
6. Replace the memory compartment cover.

User Installable Features
The memory upgrade module is not
something you routinely remove from
your LifeBook notebook. Once it is
installed, you should leave it in place
unless you want to increase system
memory capacity.
CHECKING THE MEMORY CAPACITY
Once you have changed the system memory capacity by
replacing the installed module with a larger one, be sure
to check that your notebook has recognized the change.
Check the memory capacity by clicking [Start] ->
Settings -> Control Panel, then double-clicking the
System icon. Select the General tab and check the
amount of memory under “Computer:”.
There may be a variation between the actual memory
size and what is displayed. This is due to the fact that
your system uses a video graphics chip which dynamically allocates system memory to accelerate graphics
performance. Up to 64 MB of memory is dynamically
shared on an as-needed basis using Dynamic Video
Memory Technology (DVMT).
If the total memory displayed is incorrect,
check that your memory upgrade module
is properly installed. (If the module is
properly installed and the capacity is still
not correctly recognized, see Troubleshooting on page 67.

Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
main board of the mobile computer.
■
The WLAN devices operate in license-free RF bands,
therefore eliminating the need to procure an FCC
license to operate. All three WLAN devices operate in
the 2.4GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM)
RF band. Additionally, the Intel PRO/Wireless
2915ABG and Atheros AR5002X devices operate in the
lower and middle bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed
National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN device is
capable of two operating modes, IEEE802.11b and

WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode (See Figure 5-1)
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Point(s).
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad Hoc networks are
also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc networks
are an easy and inexpensive method for establishing
network connectivity between multiple computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically
configured on all computers in the Ad Hoc network.
P7010.book Page 51 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
W I r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode (See Figure 5-2)
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless or
wired network devices by communicating through an
Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices
can communicate with each other or can communicate
with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks
operate in infrastructure mode because they require
access to the wired LAN in order to access computers,
devices, and services such as file servers, printers, and
databases.
How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device comes pre-installed in your mobile
computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not be
necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The Operating System that your mobile computer comes with has
been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
WIRELESS NETWORK CONSIDERATIONS
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN device supports IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g. The Intel PRO/
Wireless 2915ABG and Atheros AR5002X WLAN
devices support IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and
IEEE802.11g.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLAN device operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The Intel PRO/Wireless
2915ABG and Atheros AR5002X WLAN devices operate in the 2.4GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz lower,
middle, and upper UNII bands..
■
The maximum range of the WLAN device indoors is
typically 80 feet (25 meters). Please note that the maximum range you achieve may be shorter or longer than
80 feet, depending on factors such as access point
transmit power, number and density of obstructions,
or external RF interference.
■
Microwave ovens will interfere with the operation of
WLAN device as microwave ovens operate in the same
2.4GHz frequency range that IEEE802.11b/g devices
operate in. Interference by microwaves does not occur
with IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz
RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Symptoms of
interference include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices
be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the
WLAN device.
DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of the WLAN device may be desired in
certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics,
airplanes, etc.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device:
■
Using the Wireless On/Off Switch
■
In Windows, using the Intel PROSet Software or

Troubleshooting
Causes and countermeasures for troubles you may encounter while using your wireless LAN are described in the
following table.
Problem
Unavailable
network
connection
Possible Cause
Incorrect network
name (SSID) or
network key
Possible Solution
Ad hoc connection: verify that the network names (SSID’s) and network
keys (WEP) of all computers to be connected have been configured
correctly. SSID’s and WEP key values must be identical on each machine.
Access Point (Infrastructure) connection: set the network name (SSID)
and network key to the same values as those of the access point.
Set the Network Authentication value identically to that of the Access
Point. Please consult your network administrator for this value, if
necessary.
For the method of setting network authentication, refer to the following
page:·”Assigning parameters” on page 53·
Weak received signal
strength and/or link
quality
Ad hoc connection: Retry connection after shortening the distance to
the destination computer or removing any obstacles for better sight.
Access Point (Infrastructure) connection: Retry connection after shortening the distance to the access point or removing any obstacles for
better sight.
To check the wave condition, refer to the following page:· “Confirming
the status of the radio waves” on page 57.
The WLAN device
has been deactivated
or disabled
Check if the wireless switch is turned ON. Also verify “Disable Radio” is
not checked in “Network setting” window. Refer to “Starting Transmission” on page 52.
The computer to be
connected is turned
off
Check if the computer to be connected is turned ON.
RF interference from
Access Points or
other wireless
networks
The use of identical or overlapping RF channels can cause interference
with the operation of the WLAN device. Change the channel of your
Access Point to a channel that does not overlap with the interfering
device.
Wireless network
authentication has
failed
Re-check your Network Authentication, Encryption, and Security
settings. Incorrectly configured security settings such as an incorrectly
typed WEP key, a mis-configured LEAP username, or an incorrectly
chosen authentication method will cause the LAN device to associate
but not authenticate to the wireless network.
Incorrectly
configured network
settings
Recheck the configuration of your network settings.
Incorrect IP address
configuration
For the method of checking, refer to the following page:·“Connection to
the Network” on page 55.

Wireless LAN Glossary
Ad Hoc Mode
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 50.
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
Channel
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
Access point
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Security Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
IP address
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network (or
data communications network) which is confined to a
limited geographical area.

Protocol
P7010.book Page 61 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
W I r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
Shared key authentication
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the
official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

IP address information
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows:
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.

straightforward problems and identify failures that
require service.
IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM
If you encounter a problem, go through the following
procedure before pursuing complex troubleshooting:
1. Turn off your LifeBook notebook.
2. Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into your notebook and to an active AC power source.
3. Make sure that any card installed in the PC Card slot
is seated properly. You can also remove the card
from the slot, thus eliminating it as a possible cause
of failure.
4. Make sure that any devices connected to the external
connectors are plugged in properly. You can also
disconnect such devices, thus eliminating them as
possible causes of failure.
5. Turn on your notebook. Make sure it has been off at
least 10 seconds before you turn it back on.
6. Go through the boot sequence.

Troubleshooting
Restoring Your
Pre-installed Software
6. After the components are installed, click [OK], then
click [Yes] when asked if you want to reboot the
system.
The Drivers and Applications Restore (DAR) DVD
contains sets of device drivers and Fujitsu utilities (in
specific directories) that are unique to your notebook
configuration for use as documented below.
RESTORING THE FACTORY IMAGE
If you have access to the internet, visit the
Fujitsu Support web site at http://
www.computers.us.fujitsu.com/support to
check for the most current information,
drivers and hints on how to perform
recovery and system updates. (See
Automatically Downloading Driver
Updates on page 78 for more information)
Re-Installing Individual Drivers and Applications
The Drivers and Applications CD can be used to selectively re-install drivers and/or applications that may have
been un-installed or corrupted.
There may be certain free third-party
applications pre-installed on your system
that are not on the DAR CD. The latest
versions of the applications can be
downloaded from the third-party’s website.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. A Fujitsu Installer screen is
displayed after the CD is inserted.
2. After reading the License Agreement, click [I agree].
3. A window will appear containing a list of applications, drivers, and utilities that you can install from
the Drivers and Applications CD.
The components listed are color-coded in
terms of their install status. Blue indicates
that the component can be installed. Green
indicates that the component needs to be
installed separately. Grey indicates a
component that is already installed; grey
items can be reinstalled, but prior to
installation you will receive a reminder that
the component is already installed.
4. In the list, check off all the components you want to
install. If you want to install all components, click
[Select All]. Clicking [Select All] will select all of the
blue-coded components; you must select grey and
green components separately.
5. Once you have selected the components you wish to
install, click [Install Selected Subsystems]; the
components will be installed.
The Restore Disc that came with your system contains
two utilities:
■
■
The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use the Hard Disk Data Delete
utility unless you are absolutely certain that you want
to erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
• The use of this disc requires that you
have a device capable of reading DVDs
attached to your system. If you do not
have a built-in DVD player, you will need
to attach an external player. For more
information on available external devices,
visit our Web site at: us.fujitsu.com/
computers.
• This disc can only be used with the
system with which it was purchased.
BOOT Priority Change
Before restoring an image, you must first verify that your
system is set up to boot from the DVD drive. To verify/
change the boot-up priority (rather than booting-up
from the hard drive or an external floppy disk drive),
perform the following steps:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu.
Press [Enter].
4. If “Optical Media Drive” or “CD-ROM Drive” is not
at the top of the list, arrow down to the drive in the
list, and press the space bar (or the + key) to move it
to the top of the list. (The system attempts to boot
from the devices in the order in which they are
listed.). Note that the BIOS for some systems will
indicate “CD-ROM Drive”, even when a DVD drive
is connected.
5. If you have an external DVD drive connected,
proceed to step 6; otherwise, proceed to step 7.
6. If you have an external DVD drive connected:
• Select the Advanced menu in the BIOS window.
• Scroll down to the USB Features submenu and
press the Enter key to open it.
77
P7010.book Page 78 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM

bar to enable it.
AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOADING
DRIVER UPDATES
• Scroll down to SCSI SubClass Support and press
the space bar to enable it.
Your system has a convenient tool called the Fujitsu
Driver Update (FDU) utility. With FDU, you can choose
to automatically or manually go to the Fujitsu site to
check for new updates for your system.
7. Press [F10], then click on [Yes] to exit the BIOS
Setup Utility and return to the boot process.
After you have changed the boot priority, you can restore
a backup image when you are booting up.
Procedure
1.
Turn on the power to your system.
2.
Ensure that you have a device that can read DVDs
either installed in your system or attached externally to it.
3.
Insert the Restore Disc into the drive tray.
4.
Reboot your system.
5.
After the system reboots, follow the instructions
that appear to either restore your system image or
erase all data from your hard disk.
78
The FDU icon should appear in the system tray at the
bottom right of your screen (roll the cursor over the
icons to find the correct one). If the FDU icon does not
appear in the system tray, it can be started by going to
[Start] -> All Programs, and clicking on Fujitsu Driver
Update; this will create the icon automatically.
To invoke the FDU menu, right-click on the FDU icon.
The menu contains the following items:
■
Check for updates now
Allows for manual driver update search. The first
time it is used, you are prompted to agree to a user
agreement. After clicking on the icon, the FDU automatically connects with the Fujitsu site to check for
updates and downloads them. While downloading,
the icon has a red bar through it, indicating that it
cannot be used while the download is in process.
When the update is complete, a message appears
informing you of the fact.
■
Enable Automatic Update Notifications
Automatically searches for new updates on a regular
basis (approximately every 3 days).
■
Show update history
Brings up a screen that displays a history of updates
that have been made via the FDU.

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
Fingerprint Sensor Device
INTRODUCING THE OPTIONAL
FINGERPRINT SENSOR DEVICE
Your system may have an optional fingerprint sensor
device in the location at which other models have a
scroll button. (Figure 1)
GETTING STARTED
This section guides you through the preparation of your
system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass
installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 102. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
Figure A-1 Fingerprint sensor
Although the system may have a
fingerprint sensor in place of a scroll
button, the fingerprint sensor can be used
for scrolling. Simply move your fingerprint
over the sensor the same as you would use
a scroll button.
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter
a username and password every time you want to:
■
Log onto Windows
■
Recover from suspend mode
■
Cancel a password-protected screen saver
■
Log into homepages that require a username and password
After you have “enrolled” - or registered - your fingerprint, you can simply swipe your fingertip over the
sensor for the system recognize you.
The fingerprint sensor uses Softex OmniPass which
provides password management capabilities to
Microsoft Windows operating systems. OmniPass
enables you to use a "master password" for all Windows,
applications, and on-line passwords.
OmniPass requires users to authenticate themselves
using the fingerprint sensor before granting access to the
Windows desktop. This device results in a secure
authentication system for restricting access to your
computer, applications, web sites, and other passwordprotected resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface,
through which you can securely manage passwords,
users, and multiple identities for each user.
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
The presence of the Softex program group in the
Programs group of the Start menu
System Requirements
The OmniPass application requires space on your hard
drive; it also requires specific Operating Systems (OS’s).
The minimum requirements are as follows:
■
■
Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional operating system
At least 35 MB available hard disk space
Installing the OmniPass Application
If OmniPass is already installed on your system, go to
“User Enrollment” on page 102. Otherwise continue
with this section on software installation.
For installation, OmniPass requires that the
user installing OmniPass have
administrative privileges to the system. If
your current user does not have
administrative privileges, log out and then
log in with an administrator user before
proceeding with OmniPass installation.
To install OmniPass on your system you must:
1. Insert the installation media for the OmniPass application into the appropriate drive. If you are
installing from CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, you must
find and launch the OmniPass installation program
(setup.exe) from the media.
2. Follow the directions provided in the OmniPass
installation program. Specify a location to which
you would like OmniPass installed. It is recommended that you NOT install OmniPass in the root
directory (e.g. C:\).
3. Once OmniPass has completed installation you will
be prompted to restart you system. Once your
system has rebooted you will be able to use
OmniPass. If you choose not to restart immediately
after installation, OmniPass will not be available for
use until the next reboot.

network resources, you often have to supply credentials
to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of credentials that you have to remember.
Verifying Information about OmniPass
After you have completed installing OmniPass and
restarted your system, you may wish to check the version
of OmniPass on your system.
During OmniPass user enrollment a "master password”
is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with
OmniPass.
To check the version information of OmniPass:
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system
(his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass user with
username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then
goes to his webmail site to log onto his account. He
inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username
“John_02” and password “lifebook”), but instead of
clicking [Submit], he directs OmniPass to Remember
Password. Now whenever he returns to that site,
OmniPass will prompt him to supply access credentials.
1. From the Windows Desktop, double-click the keyshaped OmniPass icon in the taskbar (usually
located in the lower right corner of the screen),
or,
Click the Start button, select Settings, and click

will see the Control Panel directly in the Start menu;
click it, then click Switch to Classic View). Doubleclick Softex OmniPass in the Control Panel, and the
OmniPass Control Center will appear. If it does not
appear, then the program is not properly installed,
or,
Click the Start button, select Programs, and from
the submenu select the Softex program group, from
that submenu click OmniPass Control Center.
2. Select the About tab at the top of the OmniPass
Control Panel. The About tab window appears with
version information about OmniPass.
Uninstalling OmniPass
For uninstallation, OmniPass requires that
the user uninstalling OmniPass have
administrative privileges to the system. If
your current user does not have
administrative privileges, log out and then
log in with an administrator user before
proceeding with OmniPass uninstallation.
To remove the OmniPass application from your system:
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar. Select Settings,
and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
3. Select OmniPass, and then click Change/Remove.
4. Follow the directions to uninstall the OmniPass
application.
5. Once OmniPass has finished uninstalling, reboot
your system when prompted.
USER ENROLLMENT
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first
enroll a user into OmniPass.
Master Password Concept
Computer resources are often protected with passwords.
Whether you are logging into your computer, accessing
your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing
102
John enters his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01”
and “freq14”) in the OmniPass authentication prompt,
and he is allowed into his webmail account. He can do
this with as many web sites or password protected
resources he likes, and he will gain access to all those
sites with his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01” and
“freq14”). This is assuming he is accessing those sites
with the system onto which he enrolled his OmniPass
user. OmniPass does not actually change the credentials
of the password protected resource. If John were to go to
an Internet cafe to access his webmail, he would need to
enter his original webmail credentials (“John_02” and
“lifebook”) to gain access. If he attempts his OmniPass
user credentials on a system other than where he
enrolled that OmniPass user, he will not gain access.
The enrollment procedure assumes you
have no hardware authentication devices
or alternate storage locations that you
wish to integrate with OmniPass. If you
desire such functionality, consult the
appropriate sections of this document.
Basic Enrollment
The Enrollment Wizard will guide you through the
process of enrolling a user. Unless you specified otherwise, after OmniPass installation the Enrollment Wizard
will launch on Windows login. If you do not see the
Enrollment Wizard, you can bring it up by clicking Start
on the Windows taskbar; select Programs; select Softex;
click OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
1. Click Enroll to proceed to username and password
verification. By default, the OmniPass Enrollment
Wizard enters the credentials of the currently logged
in Windows user.
2. Enter the password you use to log in to Windows.
This will become the “master password” for this
OmniPass user. In most cases, the Domain: value
P7010.book Page 103 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or when accessing corporate
resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows
computer name. Click [Next] to continue.
3. In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint.
Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 103 for
additional information.
4. Next, choose how OmniPass notifies you of various
events. We recommend you keep Taskbar Tips on
Beginner mode taskbar tips and Audio Tips on at
least Prompt with system beeps only until you get
accustomed to how OmniPass operates. Click [Next]
to proceed with user enrollment. You will then see a
Congratulations screen indicating your completion
of user enrollment.
5. Click [Done] to exit the OmniPass Enrollment
Wizard. You will be asked if you’d like to log in to
OmniPass with your newly enrolled user; click [Yes].
Enrolling a Fingerprint
Enrolling a fingerprint will increase the security of your
system and streamline the authentication procedure.
You enroll fingerprints in the OmniPass Control Center.
With an OmniPass user logged in, double-click the
system tray OmniPass icon. Select the User Settings tab
and click Enrollment under the User Settings area. Click
Enroll Authentication Device and authenticate at the
authentication prompt to start device enrollment.
1. During initial user enrollment, you will be
prompted to select the finger you wish to enroll.
Fingers that have already been enrolled will be
marked by a green check. The finger you select to
enroll at this time will be marked by a red arrow.
OmniPass will allow you re-enroll a finger. If you
choose a finger that has already been enrolled and
continue enrollment, OmniPass will enroll the
fingerprint, overwriting the old fingerprint. Select a
finger to enroll and click [Next].
2. It is now time for OmniPass to capture your selected
fingerprint. It may take a several capture attempts
before OmniPass acquires your fingerprint. Should
OmniPass fail to acquire your fingerprint, or if the
capture screen times out, click [Back] to restart the
fingerprint enrollment process.
Your system has a “swipe” fingerprint sensor. A
swipe sensor is small and resembles a skinny elongated rectangle. To capture a fingerprint, gently
swipe or pull your fingertip over the sensor (starting
at the second knuckle) towards yourself. Swiping
too fast or too slow will result in a failed capture.
The Choose Finger screen has a [Practice] button;
click it to practice capturing your fingerprint. When
you are comfortable with how your fingerprint is
captured, proceed to enroll a finger.
3. Once OmniPass has successfully acquired the fingerprint, the Verify Fingerprint screen will automatically appear. To verify your enrolled fingerprint,
place your fingertip on the sensor and hold it there
as if you were having a fingerprint captured.
Successful fingerprint verification will show a green
fingerprint in the capture window and the text Verification Successful under the capture window.
USING OMNIPASS
You are now ready to begin using OmniPass. Used regularly, OmniPass will streamline your authentications.
Password Replacement
You will often use the password replacement function.
When you go to a restricted access website (e.g., your
bank, your web-based email, online auction or payment
sites), you are always prompted to enter your login
credentials. OmniPass can detect these prompts and you
can teach OmniPass your login credentials. The next
time you go to that website, you can authenticate with
your fingerprint to gain access.
OmniPass Authentication Toolbar
After installing OmniPass and restarting, you will notice
a dialog you have not seen before at Windows Logon.
This is the OmniPass Authentication Toolbar, and it is
displayed whenever the OmniPass authentication system
is invoked. The OmniPass authentication system may be
invoked frequently: during Windows Logon, during
OmniPass Logon, when unlocking your workstation,
when resuming from standby or hibernate, when
unlocking a password-enabled screensaver, during password replacement for remembered site or application
logins, and more. When you see this toolbar, OmniPass
is prompting you to authenticate.
The Logon Authentication window indicates what
OmniPass-restricted function you are attempting. The
icons in the lower left (fingerprint and key) show what
authentication methods are available to you. Selected
authentication methods are highlighted while unselected
methods are not. When you click the icon for an unselected authentication method, the authentication
prompt associated with that method is displayed.
When prompted to authenticate, you must supply the
appropriate credentials: an enrolled finger for the fingerprint capture window or your master password for the
master password prompt (the key icon).
Remembering a Password
OmniPass can remember any application, GUI, or password protected resource that has a password prompt.
Using the following procedure, you can store a set of
credentials into OmniPass. These credentials will then be
linked to your “master password” or fingerprint.
103
P7010.book Page 104 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
LifeBook P7000 Notebook – Appendix
Go to a site that requires a login (username and password), but do not log in yet. At the site login prompt,
enter your username and password in the prompted
fields, but do not enter the site (do not hit [Enter],
[Submit], [OK], or Login). Right-click the OmniPass
system tray icon and select Remember Password from
the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will change to
a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click this OmniPass
cursor in the login prompt area, but do not click the
[Login] or [Submit] button.
Associating a Friendly Name
After clicking the OmniPass key cursor near the login
prompt, OmniPass will prompt you to enter a “friendly
name” for this site. You should enter something that
reminds you of the website, the company, or the service
you are logging into. In its secure database, OmniPass
associates this friendly name with this website.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
When OmniPass prompts you to enter a “friendly name”
you also have the opportunity to set how OmniPass
authenticates you to this site. There are three effective
settings for how OmniPass handles a remembered site.
The default setting is Automatically click the “OK” or
“Submit” button for this password protected site once
the user is authenticated. With this setting, each time
you navigate to this site OmniPass will prompt you for
your master password or fingerprint authentication
device. Once you have authenticated with OmniPass,
you will automatically be logged into the site.
Less secure is the option to Automatically enter this
password protected site when it is activated. Do not
prompt for authentication. Check the upper box to get
this setting, and each time you navigate to this site
OmniPass will log you into the site without prompting
you to authenticate.
This setting is more convenient in that
whenever you go to a site remembered
with this setting, you will bypass any
authentication procedure and gain instant
access to the site. But should you leave
your system unattended with your
OmniPass user logged in, anyone using
your system can browse to your password
protected sites and gain automatic access.
If you uncheck both boxes in Settings for this Password
Site, OmniPass will prompt you for your master password or fingerprint authentication device. Once you
have authenticated with OmniPass your credentials will
be filled in to the site login prompt, but you will have to
click the website [OK], [Submit], or [Login] button to
gain access to the site.
104
Click Finish to complete the remember password procedure. The site location, the credentials to access the site,
and the OmniPass authentication settings for the site are
now stored in the OmniPass secure database. The
OmniPass authentication settings (Settings for this Password Site) can always be changed in Vault Management.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
Whether or not OmniPass prompts you to authenticate
when you return to a remembered site is determined by
Settings for this Password Site and can be changed in
Vault Management.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to
login to: Windows, remembered web sites, and all other
password protected resources.
With Master Password
Once you return to a site you have remembered with
OmniPass, you may be presented with a master password prompt. Enter your master password and you will
be allowed into the site.
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
When logging into Windows with a fingerprint device,
the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to
the Windows Login screen. Place your enrolled fingertip
on the sensor to authenticate. You will be simultaneously
logged into Windows and OmniPass. The capture
window will also appear if you have used Ctrl-Alt-Del to
lock a system, and the fingerprint device can be used to
log back in as stated above.
If a machine is locked and OmniPass
detects a different user logging back in
with a fingerprint, the first user will be
logged out and the second user logged in.
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either for
classic login, or for fast user switching and logon screen
to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to
Windows. To change this go to Control Panel, select
User Accounts and then click Change the way users log
on or off. If your Windows screensaver is password
protected, the fingerprint capture window will now
appear next to screensaver password dialog during
resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled finger.
Password Management
OmniPass provides an interface that lets you manage
your passwords. To access this GUI, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; you will be prompted to authenticate. Once you
gain access to Vault Management, click Manage Passwords under Vault Settings. You will see the Manage
Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
P7010.book Page 105 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
You can view the credentials stored for any remembered
website by highlighting the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog and clicking Unmask Values.
Should a password be reset, or an account expire, you
can remove stored credentials from OmniPass. Highlight
the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog
and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to confirm
the password deletion.
The two check boxes in Manage Passwords govern
whether OmniPass prompts you to authenticate or
directly logs you into the remembered site.
OmniPass will overwrite an old set of credentials for a
website if you attempt to use Remember Password on an
already remembered site.
The exception to the above rule is the resetting of your
Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, then the next time you login to Windows,
OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” your password with
OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt(s) and click OK and your OmniPass "master
password" will still be your Windows password.
OmniPass User Identities
Identities allow OmniPass users to have multiple
accounts to the same site (e.g., bob@biblomail.com and
boballen@biblomail.com). If OmniPass did not provide
you identities, you would be limited to remembering
one account per site.
To create and manage identities, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Once
you gain access to Vault Management, click Manage
Identities under Vault Settings. You can only manage
the identities of the currently logged in OmniPass user
To add a new identity, click New Identity or double-click
Click here to add a new identity. Name the new identity
and click [OK], then click [Apply]. You can now switch
to the new identity and start remembering passwords.
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to
delete and click [Delete Identity], then click [Apply].
When you delete an identity, all of its
associated remembered sites and password
protected dialogs are lost.
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you
want as default and click [Set as Default]; click [Apply]
to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to
OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will automatically be logged in to the default identity for that
OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with which
you are logging in if you login using "master password".
Choosing User Identity during Login
To choose your identity during login, type your username in the User Name: field. Press [Tab] and see that
the Domain: field self-populates. Click the Password:
field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see the pulldown menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity you
wish to login as and then click OK to login.
Switch User Identity
To switch identities at any time, right-click the
OmniPass system tray icon and click Switch User Identity from the submenu. The Switch Identity dialog will
appear. Select the desired identity and then click OK.
Identities and Password Management
On the Manage Passwords interface of the Vault
Management tab of the OmniPass Control Center, there
is a pull-down selection box labeled, Identity. This field
lets you choose which identity you are managing passwords for. When you select an identity here, only those
password protected dialogs that are associated with that
identity are shown. You can perform all the functions
explained in “Password Management” on page 104.
CONFIGURING OMNIPASS
This section gives an overview of both the Export/
Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
Exporting and Importing Users
Using the OmniPass Control Center, you can export and
import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and
any enrolled fingerprints for an OmniPass user. All
OmniPass data for a user is backed up to a single
encrypted database file. During the import process, the
Windows login of the exported user is required. If the
proper credentials cannot be supplied, the user profile
will not be imported.
■
■
You should periodically export your user
profile and store it in a safe place. If
anything happens to your system, you
can import your OmniPass profile to a
new system and have all your remembered settings and fingerprints instantly.
You don't forget the Windows login
credentials when exporting. When you
examine the importation, you are
prompted for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile
to be imported are the Windows login
credentials of the exported user. They
are the credentials that had to be
submitted when the user profile was
exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain.
105
P7010.book Page 106 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
LifeBook P7000 Notebook – Appendix
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center,
and click Import/Export User under Manage Users.
Click Exports an OmniPass user profile. OmniPass will
prompt you to authenticate. Upon successfully authentication, you must name the OmniPass user profile and
decide where to save it. An .opi file is generated, and you
should store a copy of it in a safe place.
This .opi file contains all your user specific OmniPass
data, and it is both encrypted and password protected.
This user profile does NOT contain any of your
encrypted data files.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
You cannot import a user into OmniPass if
there already is a user with the same name
enrolled in OmniPass.
To import an OmniPass user open the OmniPass
Control Center, and click Import/Export User under
Manage Users. Click Imports a new user into OmniPass
and then select OmniPass Import/Export File (*.opi)
and click Next. OmniPass will then prompt you to
browse for the file you had previously exported (.opi
file). When you select the .opi file for importation,
OmniPass will prompt you for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile to be imported
are the Windows login credentials of the exported user.
They are the credentials that had to be submitted when
the user profile was exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain. If you don’t remember the value
for Domain, in a PC or SOHO environment Domain
should be your computer name.
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully
imported.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
Assume you export a local Windows User profile from
OmniPass. You want to import that profile to another
machine that has OmniPass. Before you can import
the profile, a Windows user with the same login credentials must be created on the machine importing the
profile.
■
If you export an OmniPass-only user, you can import
that user to any computer running OmniPass, provided that a user with that name is not already
enrolled in OmniPass.
■
If you attempt to import a user profile who has the
same name as a user already enrolled in OmniPass, the
OmniPass import function will fail.
OMNIPASS CONTROL CENTER
This section will serve to explain functions within the
OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained earlier.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of
three ways:
■
Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in
the Windows taskbar (typically in the lower-right corner of the desktop)
■
Click the Start button; select the Programs group;
select the Softex program group; and click the
OmniPass Control Center selection.
■
Open the Windows Control Panel (accessible via Start
button --> Settings --> Control Panel) and doubleclick the Softex OmniPass icon.
User Management
The User Management tab has two major interfaces:
Add/Remove User and Import/Export User. Import/
Export User functionality is documented in “Exporting
and Importing Users” on page 105. Add/Remove User
functionality is straightforward.
If you click Adds a new user to OmniPass you will start
the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard. The Enrollment
Wizard is documented in “User Enrollment” on
page 102.
If you click Removes a user from OmniPass, OmniPass
will prompt you to authenticate. Authenticate with the
credentials (or enrolled fingerprint) of the user you wish
to remove. OmniPass will prompt you to confirm user
removal. Click OK to complete user removal.
■
Example: I have a Windows user with the username
“Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my system. I
have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered
passwords. I want to take all my passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my
new system and using the Control Panel I create a user
with the username "Tom" and the password "Sunshine". I can now successfully import the OmniPass
user data to the new system.
106
Removing a user will automatically destroy
all OmniPass data associated with that
user. All identities and credentials
associated with the user will be lost.
If you are sure about removing the user,
we recommend you export the user
profile.
User Settings
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio Settings,
Taskbar Tips, and Enrollment. User settings allow users
to customize OmniPass to suit their individual preferences. Under User Settings (Audio Settings and Taskbar
Tips) you can set how OmniPass notifies the user of
OmniPass events (e.g., successful login, access denied,
P7010.book Page 107 Thursday, October 14, 2004 2:25 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
etc.). The details of each setting under the Audio
Settings and Taskbar Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. For the procedure to enroll and authentication
device refer to Chapter 2.3. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll Authentication Device, and authenticate with OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition
device in the Select Authentication Device screen (it
should already be marked by a green check if you have a
finger enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found
in the System Settings tab. With these options you can
specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your
Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as
the current user, will do just as it says; during Windows
login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your
Windows login credentials. If the user logging into
Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login
no one will be logged on to OmniPass. This setting is
appropriate for an office setting or any setting where
users must enter a username and password to log into a
computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass
at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login once you
have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at
startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking
the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in User
from the right-click menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a user with a
blank password to OmniPass, you may need to adjust
your local security settings. First attempt the procedure explained in the Cannot add Windows user to
OmniPass section. If the difficulties persist, then try
the following procedure.
Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools,
and Local Security Settings. Expand Local Policies,
expand Security Options, and double-click
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only. This setting should be
set to Disabled.
Dialog appears after OmniPass authentication during
Windows Logon
After installing OmniPass on your system, you can
choose to logon to Windows using OmniPass. You
authenticate with OmniPass (via master password, or
an enrolled security device) and OmniPass logs you
into Windows. You may, during this OmniPass
authentication, see a Login Error dialog box.
This dialog box occurs when OmniPass was unable to
log you into Windows with the credentials supplied
(username and password). This could happen for any
of the following reasons:
■
■
Your Windows password has changed
Your Windows account has been disabled
If you are having difficulties due to the first reason,
you will need to update OmniPass with your changed
Windows account password. Click Update Password
and you will be prompted with a dialog to reconfirm
your password.
Enter the new password to your Windows user
account and click OK. If the error persists, then it is
unlikely the problem is due to your Windows user
account password changing.
You cannot use OmniPass to create Windows users. You
must first create the Windows user, and you will need
administrative privileges to do that. Once the Windows
user is created, you can add that user to OmniPass using
the same username and password
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user
to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local security settings. You can do this by going to Start,
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local
Security Settings. Expand Local Policies, expand
Security Options, and double-click Network Access:
Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts. The
correct setting should be Classic - Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
